Spain has experienced in recent decades a significant increase in the mixed unions between natives and immigrants with one of the spouses being Muslim. In this article we present the results of a pioneering and exploratory study on the negotiation of the religious identity of youth descendants of these interreligious (Muslim & non-Muslim) couples, in a context of prevalent secularism and islamophobia. Drawing on the analysis of in-depth interviews, the results show that these young people negotiate their cultural-religious belonging in a myriad of ways, with positive or negative experiences depending on various factors, mainly gender.
